Valeria Estefanía Franceschi of Panama has been named as the favourite to be crowned Miss International 2021, with Cindy Isendi of Kenya expected to be picked for the second runner-up title.
The other beauties from the Czech Republic and Mexico are anticipated to make the pageant’s leading five contestants.
Local girl Phuong Anh is 22 years old, stands at 1.77 metres tall, and measures 87-61-93. Born in Ho Chi Minh City, she first rose to prominence by winning the first runner-up title at the Miss Vietnam 2020 pageant and will therefore represent Vietnam at the 2021 Miss International pageant.
Originally launched back in 1960, Miss International makes up one of the Big Four international beauty competitions, including Miss World, Miss Universe, and Miss Earth. This year’s contest is scheduled to take place in Japan in November.
In previous versions of the event, Vietnamese representatives won high prizes at the Miss International pageant, including Pham Hong Thuy Van who won the third runner-up title in 2015 and Tuong San who clinched a finish among the leading eight contestants back in 2019.
